Klingon emblem[edit]

File:KlingonInsignia.png Should probably more correctly be an asymmetrical Triskelion than a Trefoil... AnonMoos (talk) 15:37, 26 January 2008 (UTC)

Adidas Logo

Is the Adidas logo a trefoil? Because, I don't think it is.Fuzzy901 (talk) 08:10, 28 June 2008 (UTC)

The article tries to make clear that there are two Adidas logos: one for performance products and one for casual products. The performance products use the three stripes. The other is a three-leafed logo, so it might be a trefoil, but the leaves don't form a circle, they sort of all point upwards. I couldn't find a file image in wikipedia, but here is a link to an image. Adidas Trefoil Logo - ErinHowarth (talk) 19:12, 18 December 2012 (UTC)

Girl Scouts[edit]

File:Girl Scouts of the USA.svg The Girl Scouts of the USA refer to this as a trefoil, but I am not sure that it is. It seems to me to have four leaves. Maybe it is three leaves and a really wide, short stem... -ErinHowarth (talk) 18:57, 18 December 2012 (UTC)

Christian Symbolism[edit]

The opening paragraph refers to the trefoil's use in "traditional Christian symbolism," but the only mention later is of this is that it was combined with a triangle that had symbolic meaning (the trinity) rather than inherent symbolism in the trefoil. This seems a bit slight and incidental to rate the reference in the header paragraph. Is there more here that someone could beef this part up with? If not, mentioning this aspect in the summary paragraph feels like topic advocacy rather than neutral description.TheCormac (talk) 22:16, 12 March 2014 (UTC)

In Gothic architecture, just the presence of a window in the shape of the outline of three overlapping circles can be symbolic of the Trinity in itself... AnonMoos (talk) 04:25, 13 March 2014 (UTC)
